TOWIE star Sam Faiers ‘locked herself in plane toilet’ as baby Edward ‘had a breakdown’May 2, 2023
The Only Way is Essex's Sam Faiers sought desperate measures to calm her baby down on a recent family holiday to Dubai.
Born just under a year ago, second son Edward – Paul and Rosie are his older siblings – apparently did his best impression of a tornado on the plane, which had been delayed by 90 minutes.
His mum, 32, revealed on the latest episode of The Sam & Billie Show podcast that her tranquility was short-lived as an air hostess inadvertently woke Edward up by asking if they needed any drinks.
"He's just started taking his first steps, so that was it," Sam told her sister Billie Shepherd.
"The whole flight, all he wanted to do was be up walking about. We did that for about an hour, up and down the aisles, walking, walking, walking. And then he just had a breakdown. I'd say out of the seven hours we were in the sky, five hours of them he was unsettled; crying, throwing himself around, shouting, stressed out."
Sam, who's only just got home from a Paris getaway with Billie and mum Suzie too, went on to suggest that this was new territory for her as a mum, because Paul and Rosie had always felt comfortable on long journeys sat still.
Frustratingly, she couldn't even quench Edward's energy with a feed, as he kept biting her, leaving Sam at the end of her tether in pain and mentally all over the place.
She also highlighted the graciousness of the rest of the cabin, as naturally, she was concerned that somebody would complain.
Sam then recalled: "In the end I resorted to locking myself in the toilet with him because he was going so like… mad, it was the only thing [she could do]. So I had the tissue, the taps on and off – we were soaked, but that gave me like half an hour entertained, and I done that twice. He did not want to go to [partner Paul Knightley], he only wanted me. He was going even more crazy when I gave him to Paul."
In a random turn of events, the reality TV personality spotted a couple of women doing some yoga at the bottom of the aisle, so she set about distracting little Edward by approaching them, and it worked.
Even greater respite arrived a little later too, as her baby boy fell back asleep before the aircraft landed. At the exit, though, one passenger's apathy nearly resulted in Sam bursting into tears, but she managed to 'hold it together' as the family prepared to enjoy the sunshine.
We already know the nightmare was far from over though, as Sam fell victim to a scammer and appealed for 'help'.
